Hello hello.  As I mentioned, I was in Chicago for work this week.  Luckily I made it back to Florida before the weather turned nasty.  Phew!  That could’ve been a huge disaster!  And now we’re on our way to Atlanta for a week before flying back up to Chicago for New Years.  So much travel this year!

This particular trip was a lot of fun.  While I was there for work, I got to spend some time with my best friend.  We hung out with a few other friends and reminisced about college.  Lots and lots of funny stories were shared.  I haven’t laughed that much in a long time.  It was much needed.

I also had the opportunity to attend another work holiday party.  It was so nice to finally meet people I email on a regular basis.  It’s cool to be part of a highly virtual organization, but nothing beats face-to-face interaction.

I didn’t take too many pictures this time around, but I can tell you this…lots of good food was consumed.  Chicago is really a food lover’s dream!

Pad Thai from Big Bowl – YUM!

My boss also treated me and another co-worker to manicures after work.  We went the festive route.

I consumed one Starbucks drink a day…I’m a daredevil!

I described my perfect New Year’s dress to my friends on Monday night.  On Thursday I got a text from Roshni asking if I liked a dress they found while browsing at a store.  It turned out that the dress was exactly what I was looking for!  Thank you Roshni and Ankita!!!

The back is the best part.  Oh and the 3/4 length lace sleeves.  Love!

Another friend sent me a beautiful link about 26 touching moments from 2012.  The tears were flowing Monday morning.  It’s nice to be reminded about all the good that exists in the world, especially in times like this.  Enjoy!

And finally, I want to share something my friend Monica sent me the other day.

This made me laugh a lot.  Indians are obsessed with Taco Bell sauce packets.  We had several containers full of them growing up.  I’ve even seen households with entire drawers full of the colorful packets of spicy goodness.  Ha!

I hope you all have great weekend full of beautiful moments. 

Catch you later…from Atlanta!  Woot!

  1. Love your dress- an open back is always my favorite…super hot! Your week in Chicago sounds great! Just out of curiosity, what’s ‘your’ drink at Starbucks? I usually get a soy cappuccino or chai tea latte but I want to try something new!

  2. My husband and his family is absolutely one of those sauce packet hoarders!! I have to admit I use more than my fair share. 🙂

    Love the dress and the mani!
